    What do you do to secure your prop tombstones to the ground? The mini plastic stakes they come with are useless, last year I used paint stir sticks and duct tape which worked fine. But this year it's extra windy and it's not working too well. Thanks!

    I love the look for the mud robed/cloaked figures and would like to have a semi-circle collection of them (thinking 5) positioned as if gathering for a ceremony in an area of the graveyard. But, I am in Michigan - guaranteed to have wet, windy, and often freezing temperatures in October. So...
  5. Halloween Costume Ideas
    So this was my first try at making a complete costume. I ordered one when I ordered the mask but it was a one size fits most.... people smaller than me apparently. So I bought some fabrick and made one. Made out of crushed velvet. I like the creature reacher oversize hands so I I made this one...

    I am, not sure if these are available everywhere, but at our Home Depot they have the HDX SKU# 420 843 Floodlight stakes in with the Christmas lights. These are really nice holders. They have a full gasket lip on the light socket to keep out the water and can be staked into the ground and also...
  7. Halloween Props
    For those of us who finally get the tombstones out of the garage only to find we have lost or broken the cheap stakes, I have a solution. I found block mesh at Home Depot that works really well for replacement stakes. It comes in 10' sections and you can cut to whatever length you need. Plus...
  8. Halloween Props
    So we went to the Spirit store yesterday and decided to pick up two sets of clown head lawn stakes because they were better than the current lawn stakes we have and the other set they had in the store. The problem is that we've never done a theme before, and I'm worried the clown stakes will...

    Hi All. Can I just say that I am loving this forum? Everyone here is so talented and inspiring me to get my butt in gear this year. I would love some feedback on my latest project. Should I leave the wood posts natural or give them a polished look by painting them? The posts are tomato stakes...

    I have those foam tombstones you can buy at Party City. I gave up on the wire things that come with them. They didn't work. So I got bamboo stakes and used duct tape to adhere the stakes to the tombstones. But in the Texas heat, the tape keeps falling off. What do you all suggest for keeping...
  11. General Halloween
    I know a lot of people hate inflatables on here, but honestly they have gotten a lot better over the past few years. I hated them too for a while, but now I own three and I think they are okay. I discovered they are not that easy to set up either as I spent two hours trying to get my giant fire...

    Paper mâché my little piggies. They will be on on stakes in my new children of the corn type area this year. I will have a corn field in the corner of the yard with a spooky pumpkinrotish scarecrow with these pig heads on stakes up and in the corn stalks. The scarecrow will not be the pumpkin...
